ElVisti offers web hosting solutions on its multi-user servers that operate on the FreeBSD operating system. The web hosting solutions come with disk space of between 10MB and 10GB. The vendor doesn’t appear to offer various packages for users to choose from based on their hosting needs; it seems like you have to contact them for further information.
ElVisti also offers customized colocation and server building services that include the development and maintenance of servers for small office gateways, dynamic multi-providers routers, corporate mail servers, and web servers installed in data centers.
After designing and creating a server network, this vendor offers users a fully fledged server support solution. This solution includes monitoring software status, diagnostics of problems with hardware, upgrading current software versions, and log analysis.
ElVisti provides its customers access to its data backup system where website data backups are performed at the disk subsystem level protected by RAID1 to RAID10 hardware.
The ElVisti website is poorly designed and unappealing, and has little information about its hosting solutions.
Pricing and Support
ElVisti web hosting solutions are expensive, especially if you consider that they come with very few, awfully limited features. The vendor provides a flexible monthly billing cycle. The hosting prices are listed in U.S. dollars.
While this vendor’s hosting solutions are expensive, it offers notable discounts of up to 50% for customers who need large volumes of disk space as well as those who commit to longer contracts. ElVisti does not offer an uptime network guarantee and has no refund policy.
Customers can get in touch with the ElVisti support team via telephone or email. The vendor has not availed a live chat or ticketing system and my email to this vendor received no reply. ElVisti also has no knowledge base on its website.
